The Diamond vs. The Walking Dead?

Well, close enough. Dustin Poirier and ‘The Korean Zombie’ Chan Sung Jung will headline the upcoming UFC on Fuel 3 card slated for May 15 in Fairfax, VA.

UFC officials confirmed the bout on Friday.

Dustin Poirier most recently fought at last weekend’s UFC 143 card where he defeated newcomer Max Holloway by submission. Following the win, he mentioned that he would really like the chance to face the ‘Korean Zombie’ next, and now he gets his wish.

Known for his exciting style, ‘The Korean Zombie’ Chan Sung Jung made quite the splash back at UFC 140 in Toronto where he recorded the second fasted KO in UFC history, putting away former title contender Mark Hominick in only 7 seconds.

Currently on a two fight win streak, Jung will look to make it three in a row when he faces Poirier in the main event of the UFC on Fuel 3 show taking place May 15
